Birthday Success!

We had Maddie's birthday breakfast party this morning.
I arranged the early-morning gathering in a fit of desperation, and it actually turned out quite nicely.
Last year on her birthday, we woke up to 3/8" of ice stuck to everything and no power (or heat) in the house.
We managed to take her to the movies, but there was no cake or dinner out or anything.

I was bound and determined to make this year's celebration better for her.
I let her pick the restaurant and then called Bob Evans to have them set aside a big table for Maddie, Sam, Chris, all four grandparents, my brother, two of her friends and myself.

I also snuck in a surprise for her.
You should have seen the look on her face when the manager walked up with a stack of three HUGE M&M's pancakes, complete with eight candles!!!
After all, what better cake could there be for a birthday breakfast?

She made out like a bandit, too.
A Razr scooter, Eeyore hat and gloves, a twirly snowman atop a tube full of candies and two hand-sewn (by Grandma) nighties from Grandma Christy & Grandpa Bob.
Clothes from Grandma Toy & Grandpa Bernie.
A stained glass window decal kit, a GameBoy Pokemon game, a GameCube Pokemon game, the skirt and top outfit Amber picked out, a long-sleeve tee, two pairs of funny socks and Clue from Chris, Sam & me.

I have to go now.
If I don't the Birthday Girl will have me tarred and feathered for not helping her with the Yule tree.

You left out that she got a beautiful new Teddy bear (which she had asked Santa for but I got there first!) from FAO Schwarz which I got for her! That's how I woke her up so easily this morning. I let her choose between the bear and the drawing thing (both were wrapped). I told her one she could have for her birthday, the other was for christmas. She picked the decorated shoe box, opend the lid and started screatching and bouncing up and down!

I didn't forget.
I was just sticking to the goings-on at the party itself.
She absolutely adores the bear.

She loved 'em.
I'm hoping for something a little later in the day next year, though.
